Life Worth Living (LWL) will take place November 3-5, 2017 on the Yale University campus in New Haven, Connecticut.

Will there be free Wi-Fi on-campus?

TRAVEL & LODGING

What is the best way to get to and from New Haven, CT?

If traveling by plane, Bradley International Airport (BDL) is approximately 45 minutes from New Haven and is served by nine major carriers to 29 non-stop destinations and connections. The city of New Haven is also accessible from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), and LaGuardia Airport (LGA). Tweed New Haven (HVN) is the airport nearest to New Haven, but offers limited service.

In all cases, travel by car or train from the airport to New Haven is necessary. For detailed information on air and train travel, please visit the “Visit New Haven” web site.

It is recommended that you arrange transportation from the airport through Hy’s Limousine or GO Shuttle. It is not recommended that you take a taxi to New Haven from the airport, as it would be very expensive.

If traveling by train via Amtrak or Metro-North, select New Haven Union Station as your final destination. Taxis are readily available at the train station.

I need a VISA letter. How can I get one?

If you are an international participant and need to apply for a VISA, please email us at lwl.program@yale.edu to receive an official LWL invitation letter for your VISA application.
